I am interested to hear how other TEI encoding projects are documenting
their local encoding practices. Although the project I work on does make
fairly heavy use of customizations to TEI P4, I am not thinking primarily
of tag set documentation, since there is already an auxiliary TEI DTD for
that purpose. I am thinking of documenting encoding practices as such.
That is, an element that is unmodified (and therefore warrants no special
mention in tag set documentation) may be expected to be used in a
particular way by a particular encoding project. The local encoding
practice would merit documenting somehow, but not in the tag set
documentation. Has anyone developed an 'encoding practice documentation'
DTD, similar to but with a different emphasis than TEI's tag set
